Service was great, we got one of the best rooms, beautiful view on the creek. There was AC and a fan. Thing is, the room, although it was non smoking, smelt like smoke from time to time, but nothing really bad. Location is OK. Great hotel overall.

Riviera was an excellent hotel and the staff were very kind and friendly. Breakfast is included in the stay and Riviera had a variety of foods (omelette, crossiants, fruit, boiled eggs, juice, tea, coffee, etc). Lunch and dinner was also available, but we mostly ate outside. Housekeeping visited everyday unless you specifically told them not to. The rooms were nice...

The hotel meals were on a very high level, the quality of the products is excellent! The chef made a special delicious birthday cake. I found out it on the table in our room with a birthday greetings card from the hotel management. Bravo!

We had a 23 hour stopover in Dubai and chose this hotel to spend the night in. Easily accessible from the airport by taxi or Metro as our luggage was checked through to London. Definitely worth a taxi ride if travelling with luggage. The check in was quick and we had a Creek View room. The room was very clean...

This hotel is very simple - nice location by the river but no parking, no pool, and the coffee shop and restaurant are almost always empty. The breakfast was bad. If you're just looking for a no frills place to spend the night, it's fine.

Hotel is superbly located along Dubai Creek. Chck in was fast and good service from the bell boys. We stayed in a room with creek view, excellent! You get a chance to see sunset. The hotel is just a short walk to Souks ie gold, spice and clothing. Many good restaurants nearby.

The hotel is easy to find being on the main road right opposite the creek. Check in was quick and easy and the reception staff helpful and friendly. The room was a very good size and had a balcony which directly overlooked the creek. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable although the pillows were a bit firm...
